Christians claim the "traditions of men" in Mark 7:8 is the Torah She BikTav, Hebrew Roots people say it is the Torah She Be'al Peh. Both of these interpretations would cause the Tanach and the Brit Chadasha to be a book full of contradiction in the core of their foundations. Hear what a Lapid Jew says it is after looking at the original Aramaic as well as what the Torah She Be'al Peh says in terms of the parallels to this passage. This episode will get you thinking because Christopher discusses it from every single possible angle to get the proper interpretation of this premise. And you will be surprised to find out both the Christians and the Hebrew Roots people miss the mark on this interpretation more than you may have realized.
A common problem which has split the Guf Hamashiach (body of Messiah) are the numerous bias theologies grounded in marketing as opposed to scholarship and education, because of lack of education we see things like the Two House Movement, Sacred Name Theology, One-Torah Theology, Anti-Rabbinicism etc. We see people teaching "Paleo" Hebrew because with those people it is easier to make up your own theology and linguistics based upon documents and scholarship that doesn't exist.
In this episode Christopher discusses the importance of education, as well as mastering the Biblical languages of Hebrew and Aramaic (and for those who wish...Greek). One good place to learn these things is www.HebrewAndAramaic.com
In this episode Christopher investigates the three times the word שָׁנָה is used in the first verse and the two times the phrase חַיֵּי שָׂרָה 8 is used in the first verse. There is significance to halakha of chazel in this as well as the prophecies and identity of the Messiah Yeshua.
These teachings are by Christopher Fredrickson and air on several Christian radio stations as well as Yeshiva Radio. In Brutal Planet, Christopher discusses the ties of the New Testament with Rabbinic Judaism.
